The Water Recycling Funding Program (WRFP) promotes the beneficial use of treated municipal wastewater (water recycling) in order to augment or offset fresh water supplies in California. The purpose of the WRFP Planning Grant is to encourage Local Public Agencies to investigate the feasibility of recycling wastewater and assist them with completing planning for water recycling projects by supplementing local funds.; The WRFP Planning Grant will generally cover 50 percent of the planning costs to develop a recycled water feasibility study. Generally, all costs necessary to determine the feasibility of using recycled water and to select an alternative to offset or augment the use of fresh/potable water from state or local supplies may be eligible for the planning grant. The maximum grant amount is established by the State Water Board in the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) Intended Use Plan, or as otherwise limited by the State Water Board. A disadvantaged community (DAC) or severely disadvantaged community (SDAC) may receive 100 percent of the eligible planning costs up to the maximum established by the State Water Board. The grant maximum has been $150,000 in previous years. Applications for WRFP Planning Grants are accepted continuously and there is ample funding available. Applicants should submit an application including a Plan of Study, which will be used to determine the costs eligible for grant funding.
